MANCHESTER, N.H. – Junior Maddie Scavotto of the Saint Anselm College women's ice hockey team was named to the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District Women's At-Large Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), on Thursday.
Scavotto was one of 10 student-athletes named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Women's At-Large Team in District 1, which consists of the Central Atlantic Conference, East Coast Confererence and Northeast-10 Conference. The accolade recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and academically.
Scavotto is Saint Anselm's first CoSIDA Academic All-District selection in the women's at-large category since at least 2001-02. The women's at-large category recognizes student-athletes from the sports of beach volleyball, bowling, rowing, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis and water polo.
A junior double-majoring in psychology and Spanish, Scavotto was one of four student-athletes honored from District 1 with a perfect 4.0 GPA. The honor is the latest in a line of numerous academic achievements for Scavotto, who has previously earned American Hockey Coaches Association All-America Scholar honors and received the Division 2 Athletics Directors Association Academic Achievement Award in 2016-17. She has been named to the Saint Anselm College Dean's List in all five of her semesters on the Hilltop.
On the ice this season, Scavotto led all Division I/II goaltenders in goals-against average (0.99), while ranking third in save percentage (.942) and tied for fourth in shutouts (7). In 15 starts, the junior went 10-2-3 with 243 saves while allowing 15 goals in over 900 minutes in net to help her team to a 21-4-4 record.
Along with the rest of the first-team honorees, Scavotto advances to the Google Cloud Academic All-America ballot, with Google Cloud Academic All-America teams announced in June.
